Premier Men's Footwear Brands Announce Collaboration With Fashion Industry's Most Influential Menswear Blogger

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 6, 2016) - Premium men's dress footwear brands Gordon Rush and Crosby Square are pleased to announce their collaboration with one of the fashion industry's most-followed menswear influencers, Blake Scott.

Scott -- of the wildly popular blog www.TheScottEffect.com -- is now the first exclusive brand ambassador for Pinnacle Brand Group, the parent company of Gordon Rush and Crosby Square brands.

Scott, 26, is a menswear and lifestyle blogger in Los Angeles, and is currently one of the most sought-after male influencers in the United States. Without a background in the fashion industry, Blake's authenticity and originality has allowed him to stand apart from his peers, while sartorially influencing gentlemen around the globe. In just under two years, Scott's total reach across his multiple Instagram accounts alone has grown to over 1.1 million followers.

"This partnership formed rather organically," said Scott. "I am passionate about shoes and I continuously look for exciting opportunities that will inspire my followers. Gordon Rush and Crosby Square have consistently been my go-to footwear brands, whether I'm suiting up for a night out, or relaxing in denim. I am honored to join Pinnacle Brand Group as their exclusive brand ambassador and I look forward to being part of these brands that are so true to my personal style."

"The ongoing mission of Pinnacle Brand Group is to consistently find new ways to engage customers with our footwear brands," said Kevin Gordon, Pinnacle Brand Group President and CEO. "In the world of menswear influencers, Blake has become a pivotal player and is a natural fit as our first brand ambassador."

As part of his exclusive ambassadorship, Scott will host Pinnacle-sponsored "meet-and-greets" with fans across the country this spring. In addition, Pinnacle and Scott are collaborating on a capsule collection of Crosby Square footwear that will be launched online in Fall 2016. The line will be designed by Scott and include five unique footwear pieces that celebrate Crosby Square's heritage while infusing Scott's modern yet classic style.
